Favorite Quote:
Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two."

You’re always telling

Saying, whispering, yelling

That I’m outta my head

But my head is intact

So what can you say

Now that my actions reject your words

Go ahead, be speechless,

I like it

Back and forth, too and fro so long

It’s truly sad how you think you know

Without you how my dreams will go

Hope you find it ironic

That you were what gave me direction

From you my path was cleared

And I’m gonna go for it

Come on, let me surprise you

I like it

Back and forth, to and fro so long

It’s gonna feel so damn good once you’re wrong

But the ultimate prize

Is the one that’s disguised

As you

It’s gonna feel so good when you’re wrong

Simply because it was back and forth so long
